I read all the letters, I read each word that you've sent to me
And though it's past now, and the words start to fade
All the memories I have start, still remain

I've kept all the pictures, but I hide my feelings so no-one knows
Oh sure my friends all come round, but I'm in a crowd on my own
It's 'cos you're gone now, but your heart, still remains
And it'll be here if you come again

You see, I'd heard the rumours, I knew before you let me know
But I didn't believe it, not you,
No you would not let me go
Seems I was wrong, but I love, I love you the same
And that's the one thing that you can't take away but just remember...

If leaving me is easy,
Going back is harder...

    This song is about forgiveness. Someone left emotionally first then physically. The singer is willing to put all that aside for a second chance
    because he is still in love, thus forgiveness.
